The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Micah 6:1-8 

1 Hear ye now what the LORD saith: "Arise, contend thou before the mountains, 
and let the hills hear thy voice. 
2 Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD'S controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth; 
for the LORD hath a controversy with His people, and He will plead with Israel. 
3 O My people, what have I done unto thee? And wherein have I wearied thee? 
Testify against Me! 
4 For I brought thee up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of servitude; 
and I sent before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam. 
5 O My people, remember now what Balak king of Moab counseled, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, from Shittim unto Gilgal, 
that ye may know the righteousness of the LORD."

6 With what shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? 
Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? 
7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, 
or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? 
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, 
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? 
8 He hath shown thee, O man, what is good: 
and what doth the Lord require of thee but to do justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

Psalm 50

1 The Mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
3 Our God shall come and shall not keep silence;
a devouring fire shall go before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him.
4 He shall call to the heavens from above and to the earth,
that He may judge His people:
5 "Gather My saints together unto Me,
those that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice."
6 And the heavens shall declare His righteousness,
for God Himself is judge.

7 "Hear, O My people, and I will speak,
O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices
or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before Me.
9 I will take no bullock out of thy house,
nor hegoats out of thy folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is Mine
and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11 I know all the fowls of the mountains,
and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.
12 If I were hungry I would not tell thee,
for the world is Mine and the fullness thereof.
13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,
or drink the blood of goats?

14 "Offer unto God thanksgiving,
and pay thy vows unto the Most High,
15 and call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me."

16 But unto the wicked God saith: "What hast thou to do to declare My statutes, or that thou shouldest take My covenant in thy mouth,
17 seeing thou hatest instruction and castest My words behind thee?
18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consented with him,
and thou hast been partaker with adulterers.
19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil,
and thy tongue frameth deceit.
20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother;
thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence;
thou thoughtest that I was altogether such a one as thyself.
But I will reprove thee and set them in order before thine eyes.

22 "Now consider this, ye that forget God,
lest I tear you in pieces and there be none to deliver:
23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth Me;
and to him that ordereth his manner of living aright, I will show the salvation of God."

Words of Worship - Psalm 95:8

"Harden not your heart as in the provocation,
and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness

Matthew 12:38-42

38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, "Master, we would see a sign from thee." 39 But He answered and said unto them,

"An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign, and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in the Judgment with this generation and shall condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, a greater than Jonah is here. 42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the Judgment with this generation and shall condemn it, for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, a greater than Solomon is here.


Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 5:15-16

But the righteous live for evermore; 
their reward also is with the Lord, and the care of them is with the Most High.
Therefore shall they receive a glorious kingdom, 
and a beautiful crown from the Lord's hand; 
for with His right hand shall He cover them, 
and with His arm shall He protect them.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 6:3-4

But when thou givest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth, 4 that thine almsgiving may be in secret; and thy Father who seeth in secret, Himself shall reward thee openly.
